All week, while other paintings have come and gone in the studio, Bubbles and I have been spending time together. Perhaps I didn't really want to finish this painting, because I enjoy his company so much. He is such a gentleman - so polite and kind. With adorable ears and a muzzle that begs to be petted.
What I know about Bubbles (the real donkey, not my whimsical depiction) I learned from John Mulvihill, his current owner. Bubbles was sorely neglected when John came across him. Hair wild and matted, undernourished, belly filled with worms. He was for sale for the small sum of 30 euros (about $33), which was less than it would cost to make him well again.
